Thanks to Dodocool, we’ll be taking a quick look at these magnetic wireless stereo sports headphones (or some people call them earphones/earbuds).
I not a real fan of bluetooth heaphones/earphones. That’s because you have to remember to charge the darn thing every time you want to use them. If you forget to charge them … then that’s it, they’re useless. I guess with such a big trend in wearables and fitness trackers, many people are getting into the habit of charging the endless about of devices every night 😉 OK rant over …
I recently started to get my body back into shape, and what better way to do that than to start running! All my previous attempts of listening to music while running failed, especially when I was still using the included earpods (wired) of my iPhone. So, I decided to give these Dodocool magnetic wireless stereo sports headphones a try.

A Closer Look
The first thing you’ll notice about these magnetic wireless stereo sports headphones are the hooked earplugs. These can be replaced with different sizes which are also included with the package. The main charging port is via a micro USB connector located on the dongle, this is covered by a splash-proof flap. Also included is a micro-USB charging cable and nice rather nice carbon-fiber looking pouch.
The in-line remote control allows you to easily adjust the volume, control media playback, answer/reject/transfer/end calls. This I like.
The built-in magnetic design all users to wear them like a necklace and prevents it from being dropped during sports activities.
How they Look
I’ve been wearing these daily for the past few weeks now, and surprisingly I’m VERY pleased with them. I’ve also been using these earphones during my run, and they have not popped out or loosen. The noise cancellation is pretty good, but don’t expect anything like the BOSE QuietControl™ 30 wireless headphones, which costs around USD $300.
Call quality in general was ok. My voice was clear with no break-up according to the recipient. I do feel that there was a slight distance to my voice though. I think you get that with most wireless bluetooth earphones anyway.
Conclusion and Verdict
The audio quality was decent, but a little too heavy on the bass I think. More importantly, the battery life was very good. I got about 6-7 hours of listening time. Not bad, considering the battery is located inside the in-line controller, which is pretty slim and tiny.
